A bit of a different post this week, as I’d like to tell you all about what I did at the weekend.
Well…what a fantastic Saturday I had!
I got up early in the morning, had a hot shower, a hearty breakfast, donned my clothes and headed out to Antenna in Nottingham where I was going to be a part of an amazing conference that was hosted by the Nottinghamshire RSA .
The conference was the Power To Create Conference and was set up to ‘ignite imagination and collaboration’ in the Nottinghamshire area around the key themes of Public Services and Communities; Creative Learning and Development & also Economy, Enterprise and Manufacturing.
Fantastic Artist Cara from Graphic Change created this fantastic graphic note-taking representation.
– Like minded people, like-minded conversation –
The day was so much fun.
I met so many wonderful people, heard about some super inspiring things that are going on in our community, as well as across the UK and the rest of the world, and made many great connections. I have a lot of coffee dates set up!
The talks that were presented were all important and thought provoking and really got you thinking more about what we could all do to contribute more, do more and continue to be a part of the dialogue that makes a difference to our society and the individuals in it.
I was fortunate enough to be given the opportunity to present a workshop on the day in which I got to speak all about a really exciting project I’ve been working on called Mind Clubbing.
Mind Clubbing is a brand new event that I will be launching in the New Year. I’ve been working really hard on this and I’m going to be telling you all about it in a few weeks’ time…I can’t wait. But for now, I got to tell all the wonderful people at Power To Create all about it. It was SO well received and I lots of people signed up on the day.
– What can you do? –
There will be other events in the area so I really encourage to find out more about the conversations that are going on. What conversations might be important to you and your community? What help might you be able to provide via your own skills, ability or expertise? Maybe you too just want to meet other like-minded people having these fantastic conversations about creative learning, taking care of our environment, forming community groups and things like the incorporation of technology into our lives and businesses.
If you are not UK based, is it that these conversations are going on in a different format in your own countries? If not, could you start something?
I’d loved to hear from you about what you would like to create or maybe what you have already created? And if you are local, I look forward to seeing you at one of the future events.
Til next week!
